Excellent Information on healing Cancer!


This is what healed Ted Kennedy’s son, of Cancer.




For centuries, Indians have been treating a multitude of aches and pains, and other ailments with herbs. Over 3,000 plant species have been used by natural healers for the treatment of cancer and other health problems. There is an abundance of scientific evidence on plants and herbs that prove their anti-cancer effects in lab studies, clinical tests, and human experiences.


Essiac tea originated from the Ojibwa Indians in Northern Ontario, Canada. When combined, herbs have great healing powers. The Ojibwa believed that a single plant possessed a unique soul-spirit, lacking in material form or substance, but when joined with other plants would form a unified spirit.


In the early 1900s, an English woman was cured from breast cancer by an old Ojibwa medicine man. She was told he had a remedy that was given to his people by the

grand fathers "a holy drink that would

purify her body and place it back in

balance with the Great Spirit." The old

medicine man gave the recipe for his holy drink to the English woman, which is now called Essiac tea.


In 1922, this same person passed the formula for this herbal tea to Rene Caisse, she was the head nurse at the Sisters of Providence Hospital in Haileybury, Ontario, Canada. Rene fought and sacrificed everything in her personal life for more than fifty years to bring Essiac to those in need, resisting temptation to capitalize on what she felt was truly a gift from God. Rene endured in her efforts in healing people with cancer up to her death in

1978. She was 90 years old.


More on the life of Rene Cassie can be found in the book "The Essiac Report," by Richard Thomas. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone wanting to gain more information about Essiac tea as an alternative health treatment.


Ozone, like Essiac tea, is a simple, inexpensive, highly effective, natural treatment with no bad side effects. The Medical Establishment who refuses to admit them and other alternatives as credible treatments for AIDS, Cancer, and other health related problems suppresses both.


Essiac tea when added to ozone treatments and the other topics covered in this book will speed up detoxification and the healing process.


The original herbs in the formula contained Burdock Root, Sheep Sorrel leaves, Slippery Elm Bark, and Turkey Rhubarb Root. Later, Rene Cassie added Watercress, Blessed Thistle, Red Clover and Kelp because of the additional healing properties that exist in these herbs.


The herbs mentioned are present in the Flor . Essence brand of Dry Herbal Tea Blend, which can be obtained at most health food stores. If you purchase your herbs at a health food store make sure there are no pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides used, and that they are not irradiated. Buy the highest quality only.


An excellent book that covers more in depth information on herbs is "Today's Herbal Health," by Louise Tenney, M.H. This book is an essential reference guide to understanding herbs used for medical purposes.
